Stanley Cook lived in Brooklyn, NY according to the 1930 census. He was the 12 year old son Joseph and Rose Cook, which would place his birth date at 1918. His Jewish father emigrated from Russia, so probably took the name Cook upon arrival in the US. No other biographical data has been located.

Tec5 Stanley Cook's group consists of his posthumous slot brooch Purple Heart, edge numbered 696935, with its presentation case.

The history of WW2 shows that the 26th Division was within sight of the Maginot Line forts at Wittring and Achen on December 7, 1944. Just prior to that, the 101st Infantry participated in the 4th Armored Division's drive east of the Sarre. Both the 101st and 104th Infantry took Sarre-Union in house to house fighting which lasted until December 4, 1944.
